The King of Tonga is dead

King Tupo IV of Tonga has died. What are the things we can say about him?

He was more democratic than King Fahd of Saudi Arabia,

His family life was mild compared to King Birenda of Nepal,

He was kinder to critics of his rule than King Hassan of Morocco, and

He met with fewer crooks than Prince Rainier of Monaco.
